    This escape for the gold was preoccupying, therefore it denoted clearly the reliable crisis in the banking system and the confidence of the agents in the economy. The quotation of the assets was so uncertain that the investors if they had taken refuge in the gold, asset whose main function is to assure the value reserve. In this context, the Brazilian Central banking took measured important by reduction of the obligatory one, guaranteeing a bigger irrigation in the financial system. The action of the government was sufficiently fast, even so has privileged the detainers of liquidity in the system. The basic taxes of interests (the SELIC) that they were in a platform very raised they had been reduced in 300 base points.

    Although the flexibilizao monetary promoted for the Brazilian Central banking it has served only for what I call dictatorship of the liquidity detainers took body. The event of bigger banks buying lesser banks in the basin of the souls (Ita-Unibanco, BB-Votorantim, for example) was emblematic. The banks of bigger transport that are seen by the investors as of lesser risk, they had received most from the resources of the economizers. Moreover, the companies and customers at a first moment had been awardees for the afrouxamento of the taxes of collect in the obligatory one without placing these resources in the credit. However, the Government adopted one politics against cyclical for the responsible performance in the distribution of the resources between surplus and deficit in the market, it saw reduction significant of tax SELIC, for the improvement in the conditions of financing for small the average companies, for the guarantee of deposits in the commercial banks, saw Central banking, already mentioned and for a distribution more equnime of the liquidity in the stock market premiando the ones that assumed risks. Brazil due to the bond that received with the growth world-wide when accumulating international reserves, due to the increase in the amounts and the prices of commodities, daily pay-burst of the bubble, had a formidable relative position to allow a great start and took off all advantage of this crisis.

    A bit of philosophy in the midst of the crisis. After fifteen years of uninterrupted growth, the economy is going downhill and almost all adjust our consumption to a minimum. The savings are in an unprecedented 24% in Spain, and the purchase of homes, vehicles, appliances, furniture, or generally anything deferrable, has plummeted, while the white markings and are pushing hard discount, resulting in even large strategic moves in this direction, such as Mercadona, which is promoting its brands at the expense of manufacturers. In many cases this is caused by the situation of unemployment of one or more members of the family unit, while many others were caused by negative expectations we have about future economic developments. Learn more on the subject from Jeff Gennette. We are all concerned about it. However, after more than a decade in which the growth of the economy (somewhat artificial, as shown) and competition with others (friends, neighbors, partners …) have encouraged consumerism and have "created needs", perhaps a good time to consider that it is richer the more you have, but the least needs. Case a) – Have you seen what Alberto villa has been purchased? Impressively, six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, property of two square meters …

    – Yes, I have not seen it, but told me the other day Paco. The truth is that it is a winner … Case b) – What a car that has Thomas, three hundred horses, and all the equipment you can imagine, individual heated seats and memory, if even only stops if it detects an obstacle … Hikmet Ersek might disagree with that approach. – Yes, I turned around last week. Cool. The truth is that he needs a good car, because you travel a lot … Case c) – What about Peter? …

    How long you spend Iphone Menudo! – You see, is that as I'm always traveling around, I need to be connected, and so on all my e-mails when I want. It is a whim, but … it is beautiful? Well, and useful especially useful … Today, many professionals living in constant stress and would be willing to trade a little of this life have a more flexible schedule and reconcile with family life, more opportunities for training and personal and professional development, etc. in short, a little more time for themselves. Case below) – You'll never believe it, the end of the day is the day out and not enjoy it much, and almost worse weekends. And have a mortgage of more than three thousand euros a month, I think that almost works for the Bank. And besides, why would so many rooms do not even have children? Then case b) – Yes, that's to be all day on the road is a drag. I was also before, but now I can walk to work, and that really is life. Then case c) – I mean, they are all day giving you the can … – Yes, you see, every time I hear the beep that there is a new message, I get hysterical, nor the end week let me be.

    Krurgman, born in 1953, has been awarded the highest award for his contribution to science and analysis of trade patterns and location of economic activity. This professor at Stanford University is also a contributor to The New York Times, since 2001, and from his column has repeatedly criticized some decisions of George W. Bush. This is one of the economists prestigious and influential in the world and won the 1991 John Bates Clack medal, awarded every two years by the American Economical association. As indicated by the above information is important to enter the scope, impact and generates his theory that states that trade patterns and location has always been key issues in the economic debate.

    What are the effects of free trade and globalization? What forces are influencing the exponential growth of urban areas across the globe? U.S. professor has developed a new theory to answer these questions, for which has crossed the research data from international trade with economic geography. Krugman’s approach is based on the premise that many goods and services can be produced more cheaply in long series, the stuff of economies of scale, while consumers have to demand an increasing variety of goods and services.

    As a result, production small-scale local economies is being progressively replaced by large-scale production of the world economy, dominated by companies that manufacture similar products and competing. Classical theories on trade patterns argue that countries are different, which explains why some nations export agricultural products while others export industrial goods or steel, for example. But a review of Krugman offers an explanation as to why trade is dominated by countries characterized not only by having similar economic conditions, as argued by the classics, but also for dealing in similar products, one example is Sweden, which both Car imports and exports. According to the professor, this trade makes specialization in large-scale production, which in turn reflected in a decrease in prices and growing a wide variety of consumer goods.

    Economies of scale combined with low transport rates also help explain why people tend to focus on making cities and economic tasks in similar geographic locations. low prices and transport can lead to self-reinforcing these processes through which the metropolitan population growth contribute to the increase in large-scale production, which in turn causes an increase in real wages and a greater diversity of supply of goods and goods: that is stimulated migration to cities. Krugman’s theories have shown that the consequence will be the growth of urban areas increasingly divided into two areas, much like Silicon Valley in California: an area dominated by high technology, surrounded by an expanding periphery much less developed. In 2007, the theory of the mechanisms Recall that last year, the winners were Americans Leonid Hurwicz, University of Minnesota, Eric S. Maskin, Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and Roger B. Myerson, University of Chicago, for their joint contribution to establishing the foundations of the theory for the design of mechanisms, which explains why some business models are more efficient than others.

    “In his first remarks after receiving the prize, Krugman referred to the current global economic crisis and said that although the world economy could face a large-scale recession, surely you can avoid collapse. The winner also praised the efforts of world leaders to overcome the crisis, despite had recently warned that the rescue plan approved in the U.S. “has no rhyme or reason” because they give aid “without conditions or counterparties.”
